He Gives Editor Advice
Dear Kd: Well I Is thinking of
going Into the newspaper game which
looks to mo like It was a easy way
to get hold of a llttlo Jack each wk.
without no work. So I have a talk
he other day with tho editor of Tho
Evening Herald which Is the name
of the newspaper hear and I tell him
I want to Job wrltelng.
This editor says havo you had any
wrltelng experience and I tell him no
only what I get marking pieces In
tho laundry at Oshkosh which Is
work that takes a good head on ac
count If you arc not careful you
mark a pair ot ktds panties so they
go to some gent which wares larger
ones. Well Ed. the editor says what
makes you think you can be a news.
paper man and t tell him that Is
easy because I read your paper every
day and I do not sen where tbeys any
trick. In wrltelng that -kJnd.fftaff.
Besides, I tell him. I see lots of times
where I could have did hotter write
Ing. This editor says he wants to give
his readers what they want tvod
would explain to him how ho could
Improve tho paper, which I do, I
tell him In" tho 1st. place you should
print from 14 (fourteen) to 2S
(twentyelRht) pages llko papers In
thu cities so a man can sit down
and enjoy the paper all evening. Ho
says do you realize that means en.
ourIi advertising to carry that many
pages but I show him where ho Is
wrong as paper Is comparatively
cheep and all ho bad to do Is to raise
Hjo selling price to 10 (ten cents)
and see how much moar money ho
would take In.
Well tho editor says theys most
likely something to what I tell him
and that gives Mm a Idear. This
(dear Is that theys a lot ot peoplo
around town which knows all about
tho newspaper business and ho wilt
form them into a board ot ensures
and make me the head of It. M Mi
would ho to klnda act as advisor to
tho paper and to confer with this
board onco and a while.
That strikes me rlfiht whero I live
Ed and I a)"s when do I start to wk.
Ho says you start rlfiht away or nt
least Just as soon ns tho cort bo.
fight Is settled and theys only 1 (ono)
In town. Ho says tho reason ho has
to walto for that 1 because If you
got hot springers and main street
ofs on this board tho board would
not bo no board atall but would all
chawed up Into sawdust.
W11 Ed. I give my boss nollco that
I quit as soon as this fight Is over
as I get mo another Job and ho acts
white about it and says all right
when that, happens glyo you a ex
tra months pay.
So you see things is looking up for

TO BE GERTJUN
Construction Is Promise'd
by Both Lines; $12,000,-
000 to Be Expended
Tho completion ot tho so-called
Natron cut-oft, making thn Klam
ath Falls district tributary to Port
land, and giving western Oregon a
new and more direct lino to Han
Francisco and other California
towns, Is apparently assured for
this state, no matter what may bn
tho ultimate outcomo ot tho pres
ent fight betweon tho Southern Pa
cific and tho Union Pacific systems
for tho control ot tho Central Pa
cific lines, says tho Orcgonlan.
Officials ot both tho .Southern
Pacific and Union Pacific systems
havo pledged thomselvcs to thn
couplolion ot tbo cut-off In casn
they ihould gain possession of tlm
i Central Pacific. At tho tamo tlmn
It was declared by railroad men
that. If tho Central Pacific should
bo mado independent ot the other
two lines, it 'could not operate In
Oregon territory successfully with
out the completion of the cut-off. ,
Outlay Is Assured
As a consoquenco tho expcndltum
ot at least $12,000,000 In railroad
construction In Oregon, tho amount
required to compteto. tho cut-off. Is
apparently assured. In addition to
a pledge to complote the Natron
cut-off, Southern- Pacltio officials
hare llkewlso declared that, It' they
should be glvon the, control of tbn
Central -Psxlfle lfner,,'""toer "wbulif
also complete a strotcb of line be
tween Klamath Falls and Wcstwood
Junction, California, thus linking
up with tho Central Pacific lino
leading to Ogdcn, Utah,
On tho other hand, the Union Pa
cific has declared that, In case it
should rccelvo b0 control of thu
lines In controversy, In addition to
tho completion of tho cut-off, It
would extend line. through central
Oregon. Just what this latter would
mean U not definitely known.
I loud lU'Run In 1005
Tho Natron cut-off is a portion
ot the Central Pacific system th
possession of which Is now- contest
ed .and It construction wbh orig
inally started In 1905, a lino being
extended at that Hmo through from
Weed, California, northward ft
Klamath Falls and later to Kirk, In
Klamath county. In 1907 work
was started on tho northern end of
tho proposed lino, which extends
through Natron as far as Oakrldge,
Oregon, thus connecting up with
Springfield and the Southern Pa
cific lines operating In tho WU
In 1913, when the suit was start
ed to dlssolvo tho morger oxlstlnic
betwoen tho Southorn Pacific and
tho Central Pacific, work on tho
cut-off was stopped. There still re
mains about 90 miles ot tho lino to
bo constructed In order to complete
tho cut-off, which avoids the Sis
klyou mountains and gives an easy
grade route between tho Willamette
valley and California points,
$ll,.TO0,00O Spent Already
The work so far completed on
the cut-oft cost In tho neighbor
hood ot $11,500,000, and the South
ern Pacific officials estimate that
It would requlro an additional $12,
000,000 to comploto It.
Tho lino which the Southern Pa
cific proposes to put In from Klam
ath Falls southward, connecting up
with tho lino between Ban Fran
cisco and Ogdcn. has a link ot
about 70 miles still uncompleted.
This uncompleted portion lies be
twon Klamath Falls and Wcstwood
Junction. Tho complotlon ot that
and ot tho cut-off would glvo a
now route for aondlng freight orig
inating In western Oregon points
eastwurd via Ogdon.
No uctlou can bo expected on any
ot this construction work until the
matter ot a rehearing in tho United
States supremo court has been set

commission has had a chance to act
